    how exactly has it bombed? :nono:

    #2 at the box office on the first week, and almost unanimously great reviews.. :dunno:

    out of 123 reviews recorded by rottentomatoes, 104 are "fresh" and only 19 are "rotten"

    what the shit? Elf looks horrible.
     
  7. The first 2/3 to 3/4 are funny. The last 1/4 is preachy and sappy.

    $130 million budget, $40 million on advertising, still didnt make #1 and in fact lost to a movie which opened the previous weekend at #2

    i would say thats some sort of a bomb. its possible it will have some decent legs but for now its a dissappointing performance

    yeah thats always a risk with the big budget epics sadly...

    what surprised me though was the really great reviews its getting over all...i thought it was going to be panned by critics...

    Man, from the looks of those numbers, all those pirated movies sure are cutting into profits! :eek3:

    Elf was a disappointment to me. I went into it and said to my friend, "If I have to be 9 years old to enjoy this, I'm going to kill you." At the end of the movie, I almost left him and the other kid I went with in the parking lot. But, hey, at least all the 9 year olds in the theater seemed to enjoy it. :hs:
